More about me:

Windows On Main Street 2009

Hudson Beach Glass was chosen for its large bright open windows and for the creative process of glass making. The ground they chose was Shoji Paper which is a translucent fiber sheet typically used to make traditional Japanese Shoji screens and doors. The mediums used were inks, translucent paints and pastels. All of the windows on the second and third floors display one window sized figure. The sizes of figures range from 3’x6’ to 3’x9’. With the common goals of using creative spirits, inventiveness, and thinking on a larger scale, these artists set forward. What they came out with was a project which expresses the human figure and the human mind while not limiting themselves to a single window and using the building as a whole.

This project was created through the collaboration of artists Beth Lewis-Jackson and Edward Vermehren. Large scale painting was a new and exiting challenge for both artists. These artists are members of the Beacon Figure Drawing Session that meets at Floor One in Beacon NY. The subjects they presented were inspired by the drawings and sketches from the drawing sessions.

Ed Vermehren is a self-trained lifelong artist with experience in many types of media ranging from paints to photography. Most of his work in recent years has been with paint and ink. Ed has been a Beacon resident for over 5 years and a lifelong Dutchess County Resident. It is truly a gift that Ed possesses, and he credits his ability to the landscapes and people of the region.

Beth Lewis-Jackson received a BFA from SUNY Purchase and an MsED from Bank Street/Parsons School of Design. She is a new resident of Beacon, Beth's paintings reflect the world as she lives it.

Hi Ed! Glad to hear you guys are on board.

We've asked the Spirit of Beacon Day committee if we can have all the arts groups together in one area. This is for Sunday, September 27 on Main Street. Dan Rigney from CityArts is leading the charge. Contact him at and tell him you spoke to me and ask to be on his distribution for this project.
